Love this park. Has a little bit of everything (water views, woods and open fields).

Smaller place than I was expecting but nice boardwalks. Nice for a place to get outside for a relaxing stroll, not for getting in miles though.

I love this trail, but it is a weekend hot spot, so expect crowds. During the week, it's less populated. I've never felt as though bicyclists were competing with walkers, but we always moved to the side to let them pass. I truly love the scenery along this area of the canal and river and appreciate the interpretive signs that have been placed since the area became a National Heritage Area. As noted from previous comments, this is not a hiking trail, and is very attainable for those just wanting to go for a nice, scenic walk with the family. If visiting, please take a moment to pause at Major Donahue's memorial.

This is a very easy boardwalk trail (with a couple of options to wander off the boardwalks). It's a great nature-viewing area located behind a Zaxby's on a four-lane, divided highway. This is a great place for nature viewing, and anyone who doesn't mind walking around in a small loop will be treated to some lovely views.

This is a great trail, though weekends see an uptick in traffic. It's amazingly quiet and peaceful, given how close it is to downtown (and how close it gets at one point to Riverwatch Parkway). Very picturesque with great river and canal views throughout the trail.

Great place to explore. Love this area.

This trail is at Phinizy Swamp NP and it goes through natural and constructed wetlands and woods. Easy walking on good trails. Lots of nature, part of a Global Important Bird Area and one of the top ten birding spots in Georgia.

This is a nice, quiet oasis in the middle of suburbia. Reed Creek Park is a nature center and boardwalk loop situated on a small wetland area used for educational purposes. Unfortunately, it has several attractions for Pokemon Go players, so they may be watching their phones and not watching where they're going.

Surface is mainly hardpack and a pretty smooth ride. Trail is wide and flat. Fine for most bikes (hybrid, cruiser, mountain). There are also a couple sections of blacktop trail. Fun to watch the kayakers floating down the canal in the summer. Trail is partly shaded.
